Couldn't find what you looking for?


I went parasailing in the Bahamas and got so sick. I vomited and then had diarhea with black stool for 2 days so far. Took a motion sock pill the first day, but just one. Been taking pepto bismol a few times a day. Thought it was getting better but there was more thIs morning. What do u think?


Hi Shayna,

Pepto Bismol can give you black stools.

I don't think it was the parasailing that made you sick.  It may be food poisoning or a stomach virus.  Go easy on your meals.  Avoid greasy foods, alcohol, and dairy products.

Have a banana.  They are good for settling upset stomachs.
